If you spent countless hours (and hours and hours) reading through the rich and surreal world Neil Gaiman created in The Sandman comics, we’ve got kind of the best news. Today, Gaiman announced in an exclusive EW interview that a new Sandman series is on the way:

“DC Comics is launching a Sandman Universe line of four new comic series. The books will be overseen by Gaiman but written and drawn by brand new creative teams. They will pick up story threads and themes from The Sandman while also adding new characters and concepts.”

This new series coincides with the 30th anniversary of the comics (30 years?!) and has a fresh batch of amazing talent on board to kick off the new Sandman series. EW notes that:

“The Sandman Universe #1 will be plotted by Gaiman but written by Nalo Hopkinson, Kat Howard, Si Spurrier, and Dan Watters, with art by Bilquis Everly and a cover by Jae Lee. Each of those four writers will then go on to explore the special’s various threads in four new series.”
